Abstract

This paper examines the construction of the Religious and Moral Education 5-14 Draft Guidelines in Scotland and the Catholic Church’s response to these guidelines. The content and background of this document are explored by examining the process followed by the Review and Development Group for religious education. The reasons for the rejection of this document and the process by which a new document was created are also investigated. Particular attention is paid to the roles played in this process by the laity and the clergy within the Catholic Church through an examination of the perceptions held by individuals involved in the process.
